Avery is a great course to play that's greens and fairways are green year round. The greens keeper whoever he/she is does a very good job keeping everything looking great with the triple digit temps. The only thing I wish this course had was unlimited practice balls with you purchase of a round.... So to get around that I practice at a facility before going here....

Good greens . Decently challenging and good pace of play. Drinking water availability on a 104 degree day can be slightly more frequent and the barrels full.

The price was the main reason we chose to play there. It also helped that the course is 10 minutes from our house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PhoenixRising1911 Short but tricky
Challenging course. Scenic holes. Played from the blues. Fairway are open but hazards are very well placed. Average drives of 240 to 260 in middle will find out that the fairway bottlenecks or have bunkers that are strategically placed. Boogie golfer and i shot a 98. I get off the tee box easily with straight drives but here i hit hazards often or trickled out of bounds. Some holes are 300 yard par 4s but no easy shot at the greens. Nice elevations.

The greens were good but the sand trap were terrible. They were hard packed, wet and you were lucky if there was an 1" of sand in the traps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Banksj2 Surprise Surprise on the First Green
I arrived for my round about 1.5 hours early and was looking to hit some balls and chip / putt. The range was pretty tight as they kept moving people tighter to make room for a clinic... This has nothing to do with the course, but when I went to get my driver off the cart some guy jacked my range balls. I've actually never had that happen before. He seemed like a regular so if this is indicative of the people that are here it is disheartening. Moving on...
The practice greens were in great shape, there was just a little but of diseased or dead grass around the edges but overall pretty good. Which leads to the surprise on the first green which I'll get to in a bit...
I had lunch before my round and I will say the burger and fries along with the service were amazing. The young lady working behind the bar was great, friendly and accommodating.
I was paired up with a fellow and we went off a little early as a twosome which was a great deal. When we got up to the first green we found a punched and sanded green which was very unfortunate that we were not made aware of. The pro shop, the starter any one could've mentioned it. As frustrating as that was we moved on.
Pace of play was a bit slow once we caught up to the group in front of us, we had plenty of time to look for the balls I hit into the weeds.
All of the water coolers we crossed where empty which was rather frustrating for a midday round at 100 degrees.
When the greens are in good shape this is a solid course. They need to get some additional help if they can't keep fresh water on the course. Hopefully the new ownership will make this equal to Teravista which is a completely different experience on the course. The two pro shop guys at Teravista hopefully will train the folks at Avery...
As long as you manage expectations going in that you are likely going to a $60/round course as it sits right now, you will be ok.

Played this course quite a bit last year and I have always loved it as its right down the road from where I live. Yesterday was the first time I played there this year and I was amazingly disappointed with the experience. Started off with getting there 30 mins early to hit a warm up bucket. So I got on the range with the two other guys I was with. None of us had hit 1/2 of our bucket when the guy in the starter house came yelling on the range that our group was late. So we jumped into our carts and hauled over to hole ten to start. Only to have 2 foursomes and a twosome in front of us... So we waited 28 minutes. Right as its about to clear up for us to hit. The Marshel drives up, I was trying to get the lay of the land and asked, "how busy is it up ahead?" He responded that your to tee off so it's not bad. I replied that we had been waiting for 30 mins, he shot back "I know that's not true, I know you have not been waiting 30 mins) and then drives off. The other guys in my group where like wow that guy just called you a lier... So we play on. Greats not in good shape(no surprise they tell you though) fairways are pretty good. Rough is the worst I have ever seen it. Anyways this Marshel proceeds to pass us at least 15 - 20 times. Then he pulls up to our carts and starts yelling at us from our carts(we are putting) that he is going to take one of the cards that they put on each of our carts so I am so upset from when he called me a lier that I don't even finish putting pick up my ball and walk over to see what's up. I ask why he needs the card, are they out of cards? He says no that he does not want us to get in trouble for playing slow(remember we started 30+ mins behind) and said that our times where different on the cards. I was like our times are the same and he was like no there different and I said no they are the same and I grabbed the one he took and had sitting on the cart set next to him and then I grabbed the one mounted on our other cart and showed him that they both showed 1:21pm.. Not a lot he could say so he just was mumbling, and then he was like what's the big deal? I responded that he called me a lirer on the first whole and he was like well I was kidding about the wait but I knew it hadn't been 30 minutes , and I said your right 28 mins was the exact time. Then he drove off without saying another thing. Then he passed by at least 15 - 20 more times. Always watching us. We where not playing slow since we where always hitting into the foursome in front of us. So it's not like we where playing slow. The round did take forever though as it took the FULL 4 1/2 hours to play. In my years of playing golf I have never seen a Marshel act this way, or seen a Marshel as much as this guy. IF I play here again and he is there I will turn around and leave right away. All the Marshels I have ever seen there where great in the past. Not this guy... He single handed will make me never play there again. And it's really sad since I live so close to it.
